An emerging cyberinfrastructure for biodefense pathogen and pathogen-host data
The NIAID-funded Biodefense Proteomics Resource Center (RC) provides storage, dissemination, visualization and analysis capabilities for the experimental data deposited by seven Proteomics Research Centers (PRCs). The data ...
A quantitative study of the division cycle of Caulobacter crescentus stalked cells.
Progression of a cell through the division cycle is tightly controlled at different steps to ensure the integrity of genome replication and partitioning to daughter cells. From published experimental evidence, we propose ...
Identification of new genes in Sinorhizobium meliloti using the Genome Sequencer FLX system
Background Sinorhizobium meliloti is an agriculturally important model symbiont. There is an ongoing need to update and improve its genome annotation. In this study, we used a high-throughput pyrosequencing approach to ...
Genome sequence of Brucella abortus vaccine strain S19 compared to virulent strains yields candidate virulence genes
(Public Library of Science, 2008-05-14)
The Brucella abortus strain S19, a spontaneously attenuated strain, has been used as a vaccine strain in vaccination of cattle against brucellosis for six decades. Despite many studies, the physiological and molecular ...
Rickettsia Phylogenomics: Unwinding the Intricacies of Obligate Intracellular Life
(Public Library of Science, 2008-04-16)
Background: Completed genome sequences are rapidly increasing for Rickettsia, obligate intracellular α-proteobacteria responsible for various human diseases, including epidemic typhus and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. In ...
